8 Plant-Based Swaps For Everything From Your Makeup To Your Morning Coffee
You can make tons of easy improvements to your health, skin, energy, and the environment by focusing on plants first.
Transitioning to a plant-based lifestyle has multiple benefits for your health and for the environment, but it’s not just about what you’re eating. There are many ways to integrate the power of plants into your life beyond what you consume. Initiating these changes can feel overwhelming, but if you start slowly and select one swap a week or a month, you will be able to seamlessly integrate a plant-based lifestyle into your everyday routine.
There are tons of small and simple changes that you can make to improve your health, skin, energy, and the environment by focusing on plants first. Check out a few of the tiny swaps I make every day that add up to a plant-based life:
1. Replace meat with plant-based protein.
If you think that a meal is not complete without some source of animal protein, think again. Legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains are all great plant-based sources of protein. Consider using black beans in place of ground meat in a hearty chili, chickpeas instead of chicken in a Greek salad, or chipotle-rubbed cauliflower and smoky beans in place of steak on your next taco Tuesday. I promise you won’t miss the meat.
